Great capture!
Where have you been? chasing frogmouths ? :D
Is this a couple...if so I think the grouchy one is the female :)
Btw tell us how you captured this night pic? (it says ISO 100 and 1/30...I thought you needed a higher ISO and a slower shutter for these kind of pictures...)

Thanks for your lovely comments everyone!

@Paresh,
Good to see you back mate! how are you doing?

@Frieda,
It should be, I think you know the reason..lol

@Patali,
Yes, but they look prettier than I thought … :P

No, this is not a night pic. I took this around 1 p.m :D

@Patali & MD,
First of all thousand apologies for incomplete exif! I forgot to include 2 more info in it :D
Flash : On
Exposure compensation : -2

I used higher ISO and it gave too much of noise in the pic (it was just before a heavy rain and also we were deep in the forest as well). Since I was bit far away from the subject I thought to use the flash without disturbing the birds. So that’s how I managed to get a decent pic at a lower ISO and a slow shutter speed. Hope you get what I’m trying to say here …. =:D

Ahh !! I forgot to mention the pint of blood that I donated to my leech friends too … :D
